Fairy Sweet - My little Abigale

Ok so I am adicted to Penny Black Stamps.  I fell in love when I met Jenn from Cardawhile.  One of the lines I just love are the Fairies.  This next card I made with the Fairy Sweet Transparent stamp set.  I just love these girls.  They remind me of my baby girl Abigale so I have renamed them my little Abi's. 

I coloured these stamp sets using my Tombow DualBrush Markers.  Have I mentioned how much I love these.  I also used Cold Press watercolour paper.  I am currently looking for a paper that I can use the blending marker with but these ones were done with a water brush.  Jenn taught me to only dip my brush in water and not to put any water in my brush.  This gives a more controlled effect and I love it.

The Paper I used for this card is Echo Park Springtime.  I cut the flowers out and accented them with Gelly Roll  Starburst clear pen.

More Penny Black Card Fun!!!

Here are a few more cards I made using Penny Black's Hello Friend clear stamp set.  I ordered in about 6 more stamp sets and I thin I might buy two more.  Wow I am falling in love with this company.


“For Family” Challenge

I am really new to Penny Black stamps.  My friend Jenn from Cardawhile introduced me to them.  She also taught me some colouring techniques that I am working on perfecting.  The stamp set I used for the following Father's Day card is the Hand in Hand.  I saw it at Jenn's store and I grabbed it.  Of course she laughed at me since I had just told her that I could not buy anything else.

The paper I used for this card is Close to My Hearts Dream Pop line that is available throughout the Month of May for the National Scrapbooking Month.  It is so beautiful.  If you want it email me and I'll send you the info.

Make sure you check out the Penny Black blog for information on the Family Challenge.
